Q

Can I build a DH public key from an OpenSSL configuration file?

A

Yes, you can build a DH public key from an OpenSSL configuration file, if you know the components of the key, as shown in the test below:

C:\Users\fyicenter>type asn1_dh_pub_key.cnf
asn1 = SEQUENCE:dh_pri_key

[dh_pri_key]
algorithm  =SEQUENCE:dh_alg
private    =BITWRAP,INTEGER:0x4CC9C94CEB5B13F2B4B3ABB9F20CB830FFC3BB5DC6\
428C08B18CF3E5301908AD

[dh_alg]
algorithm =OID:dhKeyAgreement
parameter =SEQUENCE:dh_param

[dh_param]
prime      =INTEGER:0x8B58E1395DF5CF48DA87B088C6525EFF4AECBDA5C269EF2378\
A31A4A62B1647B
generator  =INTEGER:0x02

C:\Users\fyicenter>\local\openssl\openssl asn1parse -
genconf asn1_dh_pub_key.cnf -noout -out dh_pub_key.der

C:\Users\fyicenter>\local\openssl\openssl pkey -pubin
 -in dh_pub_key.der -inform DER -text -noout

        30:ff:c3:bb:5d:c6:42:8c:08:b1:8c:f3:e5:30:19:
        08:ad
    prime:

        b1:64:7b
    generator: 2 (0x2)
